I bought a magnesium supplement the other day and only afterwards realised that it contains Magnesium Oxide and Magnesium Carbonate, which seem to be the least bioavailable forms of magnesium.
Since I don't want to throw it away, I was wondering if I could make Magnesium Citrate with it by dissolving the tablets in lemon juice? According to what I've read this should create Magnesium Citrate plus H2O. Is there anyone here with a more elaborate background in chemistry that could confirm this, and would it be worth doing this vs simply taking the MgO supplement together with some lemon juice?
